It’s been another remarkable few weeks for Cody and the family – starting with a visit from Olympic gold medal track cyclist Anna Meares. Anna offered inspiring insights into her own rehabilitation after severe neck injury: in 2008 she shattered her C2 vertebra but was back on the bike in 10 days, fighting her way back to qualify for the Beijing Olympics just a few months later, and bringing home silver. An incredible woman, and so generous with her time and friendship.
Cody’s own courage and determination have also been recognised at the 2014 Touch Football SA Awards Night. The Junior Player of the Year Award now bears her name – a real honour! And just quietly, her dad didn’t do too badly either – 2014 Coach of the Year. Well done, Mick!
